Reese Witherspoon’s daughter Ava Phillippe slams body shaming comments – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

Ava Phillippe has a message for certain online trolls with cruel intentions.

On May 3, Reese Witherspoon and ex-husband Ryan Phillippe’s daughter, 24, fired back at people who shamed her on social media.

“NBD, but I just reached a major milestone as a woman online,” she wrote in a TikTok video, in which she stood in front of a mirror and applied red lipstick properly before continuing so that it appeared smudged. “I saw two different strangers commenting on my body.”

According to Ava, the comments contradicted each other. “The first one told me to use Oz*mpic because I’m overweight,” she said. “The second accused me of starving myself because I’m too thin. My weight didn’t change in the period between their comments. (And it wouldn’t be any of their business if it did!)”

Ava continued, “They’re such bulls… No one deserves to be singled out because of the way they look. You don’t always know what someone has been through or what they’re struggling with. But it doesn’t matter who you are… .Your beauty transcends such superficial measures.”

She captioned her TikTok post: “Beautiful is just as beautiful, darlings… and body shaming is just toxic behavior. #loveyouasyouare (PS I put ‘woman’ because I see this kind of thing happening disproportionately among young girls and women, but let’s be clear; body shaming is toxic no matter who the subject is. We all deserve to feel safe and at peace in the vessel we live in.)”

Ava also shared a link to her video on her Instagram Stories, along with a photo of herself and her dog, with the caption: “Body shaming is toxic behavior. (Benji asked and he agrees) So maybe just… not do that??”



The actress, 47, who is nominated for “The Morning Show” and “Daisy Jones & The Six,” brought her eldest son Deacon Reese Phillippe as his date to the award show on Jan. 7.
